Unfortunately for those waiting for justice, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has been postponed (likely until next year) due to the Chairman’s desire to obtain more official information and background from CDC and HHS prior to the hearings.
This delay in the hearing timing gives everyone a few more days to send SafeMinds your stories. Make sure you tell Congress your experiences with the VICP, even if you never filed a case. In addition to those who filed vaccine injury cases, SafeMinds is interested in knowing what prevented or deterred people from filing cases. We know from conversations with parents of autistic children, that many of you have not filed but have vaccine injured children. Be sure to include things like a lack of information on what to do from your doctor, lawyer or health department; discouragement from anyone – including medical staff; or concerns including failure to provide timely information or to document or corroborate your child’s problems from physician’s offices, staff or insurance companies.
BUT FIRST — Please let your member of Congress know you still want to see these hearings happen as soon as possible. Phone: 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to them.
